Ordet is absolutely amazing. The combination of sublime camera work and exceptional performances give it a real intensity.

" The Ups: Simplistic movie about faith and belief is powerful due to it's simple nature and no effects making it a film where one has to accept the words and actions of the characters instead.

The Downs: It will be too quirky, strange, slow and profound for some to be accepted in their tiny minds."

"19.8. Samaan asiaan uskotaan, mutta oma tapa on aina parempi kuin muiden. Naapurin hupakko ei ole tarpeeksi arvokas pojalleni, mutta jos poikani ei ole tarpeeksi arvokas naapurin hupakolle niin lähdetään sotajalalle. Kaikessa on kyse minusta, ei isosta herrasta tai muista."
